Guerlain Ne m’Oubliez Pas Perfume - the return of exclusivity

In place and time where everything is mass-producted and available to everyone, new fragrance from Guerlain - Ne m’Oubliez Pas is the last man standing for exclusivity.
This perfume's availability is limited strictly to Champs-Elysées boutique in Paris. In other words, no, you can not buy it online, or anywhere else in the world. As an epitome of exclusivity, Guerlain makes an anti mass-consumtion statement with its hard to get luxurious product. And it's a bold statement in the world of social media and online everything. It's risky but that's what makes Guerlain an icon!
And just as I was banging my head over news such as 'Models taking selfies at D&G fashion show' and 'Reem Acra presents bridal selfie sticks' (it agitates me the way all the designers try to appeal to digital generations - just imagine what it means when a fashion blogger says that!) - Guerlain brings the smile back on my face and hope back into my heart!

Florals in autumn are not exactly a groundbreaking concept, but I am a fan of everything unexpected and unusual. Floral print may not be my thing, but this dark, goth glam version makes me want to cover myself in it - from head to toe! Unexpectedly enough, this is my favorite fall/winter trend! How about you?

Story about a dress

It happens very rare that you get to see me in a body hugging silhouette (read: it never happens) because i prefer slightly oversized clothes most of the times. Wearing tight clothes makes me conscious about all of my body parts and it makes me overly critical to myself and that is not a recipe for feeling good about yourself, right? But let me tell you, this dress is a game changer! There is something incredibly sexy about tight, black, all covered up dress! It makes me feel part like a superhero part like movie heroine. And I feel good wearing it even though, all covered up, it doesn't really hide anything.
